American Estates: Nathan Armentrout Sandblasted Billiard with Buddha Belly Bamboo Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-009-39105
Buddha belly bamboo is a unique varietal, exhibiting a more plump and rounded aesthetic than the typically crisp knuckles of regular bamboo. It's native to Vietnam and the Guangdong province in southern China, and the name's reference to Buddha's belly is noticeably apt, with the plump material here fitted to a Billiard bowl in this Nathan Armentrout piece. The bowl is forward-canted and more voluptuous than the usual pipe chart standard, the American artisan clearly having shaped the bowl to match the bamboo's aesthetic.-Truett Smith
